Dear Mr. Last Name,

I am responding to your advertisement for an estimator for Francis contracting. My track record as a successful estimator and project manager will mean an increase in revenues for your company in the short and long-term.

Currently, as an estimator I handle an average of $2 million in bidding work each month and maintain a winning ratio of 60%. I have a very adept analytical mind and I am able to negotiate cost-effective agreements with sub-contractors that add to a project’s bottom line. I also possess extremely strong mathematical skills that allow me to accurately estimate small projects on the spot to gain more business.


My proven background at winning projects and generating a healthy profit margin makes me the ideal estimator for the project. I was responsible for finding and winning $8 million worth of work on my own. That remains to company record at this day and I can bring that kind of success and determination to your organization.


My credentials & track record are undeniable. As you can see I am absolutely the right person for the job. I look forward to speaking with you very soon to set up a personal interview at your convenience.

Sincerely yours,



Sharing is caring!
